Plasma Engine was inspired by pain & void. As the Chief Architect at the cybersecurity company he founded, Alen Capalik constantly felt hindered by CPU-bound data processing Java software like Spark and Hadoop.
After exiting the cybersecurity space, Alen and Vassili Gorshkov started experimenting with processing streaming data through GPUs instead of CPUs. The result led to the the world’s first GPU-native processing software: the FASTDATA.io Plasma Engine.
Built for companies processing colossal amounts of data, Plasma Engine processes infinite live data in real-time, allowing companies to imagine and create customer experiences never thought possible.
